Requirements for Submissions: Electronic submissions should include the author’s name and publication in the subject line.  In addition to the article itself, authors should also submit their current CVs or resumes.  Although the FCBJ welcomes article topics on a range of issues, the journal only publishes articles on topics within the exclusive jurisdiction of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  The Federal Circuit encompasses a range of topics including intellectual property, patent and trade, veteran’s claims, government contracts, international trade, environmental law, Native American tribal law, and vaccine injury disputes.  Due to the limited space per publication, the journal will be accepting submissions from current practitioners and will be unable to publish articles from current law students outside of The George Washington University Law School.  Submissions by graduate students will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Manuscripts submitted by mail should be double spaced, in duplicate, along with a CD-ROM containing an electronic copy of the manuscript. Manuscripts should follow the Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed.) published by the University of Chicago Press. Footnotes should conform to A Uniform System of Citation published by the Harvard Law Review Association.

Manuscripts are submitted at the sender’s risk and no responsibility is assumed for the return of material. Material accepted for publication becomes the property of the Federal Circuit Bar Association. No compensation is paid for materials published.
